Nick France began playing bass guitar just after leaving school in 1980 and went on to sing and play in a series of local bands throughout the 80's. The first shot at major stardom was with the ill fated Birmingham based "Dreddin' The Weddin' " working with top Midlands drummer Pete Isherwood and breathing the same air as The Who and The Style Council for a short time.
For most of the 1990's he was bassist / vocalist with the acclaimed Birmingham based folk/rock outfit "Dewberry Firkin". The Firkin regularly supported circuit favourites including "The Steve Gibbons Band", "John Otway", "Quill", "Soul Survivors", Kerfuffle" and even played a Monster Raving Looney Rally with "Screaming Lord Sutch". More recently Nick was lead vocalist and bassist with Staffordshire based pop/rock band "The Special Stuff" and has had spells with folk / rock / ceilidh band "The Fox Hat", "The Rub" rhythm & blues band, Coventry folk/rock band "Bellatryx", Birmingham rock/pop bands "Jewels", "Classix", "Fools Life" and "Thirsty Work".
2013 saw a fresh challenge having now joined Disco/Soul Sensation "Dance Floor Deluxe" playing 70's Disco / Soul / Motown / Funk / Northern Soul classics.
Current gear includes the Warwick Corvette $$ electric bass, headless Washburn Status (1000 series) electric bass, Orange Tiny Terror 1000 and Hartke 1000 Speakers. This is Nick's main project now as the band goes from strength to strength www.dancefloordeluxe.com
